orangesol (875) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2014 Served on cask during the recent Iron Hill - Lancaster X-Mas in July event. This version has been aged on caraway seeds.

A - Pours murky orange with a small one finger tall white head leaving little to no lacing down the glass.

S - Smells of bready rye spice, clove, sweet caramel malt, banana, light earthy hops, and the spicy/sweet caraway. This has a ton going on yet it remains true to style.

T - Starts off with a nice mix of spicy rye and chewy caraway slowly giving way to a mix of wheat, banana, clove, light hop bitterness, and some sweet caramel malt. This one has a lot going for it yet it remains very drinkable. The finish is a mix of chewiness and spice, lingering for a short period of time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Spicy, chewy, feel with plenty of it lingering through the finish.

O - Very nice. I am glad I started with this one. I typically don’t enjoy too many "chewy" beers but this one was a revelation. I really liked the flavors and it never got to the point of being overpowering. Great stuff.

On cask at the Lancaster location. Pour was hazy orange, off white head that was thin but well-sustained. Aroma of spearmint (caraway seeds adding this?), rye spice, caramel. The flavor was strong spearmint, caramel, and a faint almost lactic/sour type of finish. This thing was highly enjoyable, although probably not highly drinkable pint after pint, and just superior to the standard roggenbier! Very well done.

Draft at IHP. Pours hazy amber ruby with off-white head. Nose is strong rye malt, caraway, spice. Tastes rich, complex, with notes of rye malt, intense caraway seeds, hops, spice, and a delicious flavor and finish.
